If you wish to celebrate the Labor Day weekend on a silly but happy note you can’t do much better than to attend the Theater Barn production of the musical “Young Frankenstein.” It continues at the New Lebanon theater Thursday to Sunday.
“Young Frankenstein” is the musical created by Mel Brook as a follow-up to his successful Broadway hit “The Producers.” It’s adapted from a very popular Brooks 1974 film that starred Gene Wilder, Cloris Leachman, Marty Feldman and Teri Garr, all of whom are in some degree, channeled in this Theater Barn production.
It is hard to think of any musical with a better score than “Anything Goes.” It’s just as difficult to think of a cast who might perform those numbers better than those in the national tour playing at Proctors through Sunday.
This revival, which originated at Roundabout Theatre in New York City, is a happy musical that entertains and delights with great Cole Porter masterpieces. It opens with “I Get a Kick Out Of You” and follows with classics like “Easy to Love,” “Friendship,” “It’s De-Lovely” and “All Through the Night.”
CAMBRIDGE - “The Drawer Boy,” playing at Hubbard Hall in Cambridge through Sunday, January 20, is officially the first don’t miss theater production of the year. I know it’s only mid-January, but this would be don’t miss theater any time of the year.
